Curriculum Development Grants

CES is pleased to offer the 2015-16 Curriculum Development Grants for Texas K-12 teachers.

This year, proposed units should tie-in with the new Digital Speakers Bureau, an online resource with videos from UT/Austin-area faculty on a number of European topics. Curriculum units should be focused on one of the topics available on the DSB (as of September 2015) and completed units will be available for download on the site.

Proposed curriculum units are to be developed over the 2015-16 AY. The chosen teacher(s) will submit working copies to CES during the AY with final edited versions submitted by June 30, 2016. Teachers who are awarded a grant will be paid $250 for a completed and submitted unit.

Units may be an overview or focus on a specific aspect of:

  • Communism (as it relates to Europe)
  • The European Union
  • The History of Art Looting
  • Dracula and Vampires
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • The Italian Renaissance

For more information on each topic, please visit 

The topics and, therefore, the units must be focused solely on Europe. 

All Texas K-12 teachers may apply. 

Application deadline: November 20, 2015
